The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Carpe Diem #209, Future

~ 1 ~

poor divination
on my part - wrote the future
post yesterday

~ 2 ~

all our best laid plans
are not within our control
but still we make them

~ 3 ~

here we are today
living yesterday's future
who knows what comes next

~ 4 ~

old man looks ahead
sees a future much shorter
than what's in the past

~ 5 ~

in the days to come
moose will ponder goose will soar
spider will spin tales


Carpe Diem #209, Future



  1. Who's better at best laid plans, mice or men?

  2. We were on the same wavelength again but so differently. Love your thoughts.

  3. wisdom from the wee spider to the old man...
    Happy tomorrow

  4. all our best laid plans
    are not within our control

    The Good Lord determines, so it is! Rightly said JzB!


  5. Oh no, a spider as well!!! How could s/he last, and hopefully no-one else has a furry creature up their sleeve for you...!!

  6. That fifth one is really awesome and so true.

  7. That old man is really awesome
